Creating and implementing a wayfinding signage system for both exterior and interior applications can be a complicated and involved process. Thankfully, we have been providing wayfinding sign design and installation to commercial businesses in the Greater Victoria BC area for close to 30 years, and can help you bring your concept to light!
Wayfinding and directional signage has become increasingly important to provide positive experiences for customers and visitors. This is especially true in urban centers, health care and transportation facilities, and campuses.
With attention spans shortened and time at a premium, wayfinding signs can be used in both interior and exterior areas – from smaller reception areas to large outdoor spaces – to create clarity and reduce confusion making time spent in your location easier and more enjoyable.
Some of our past customers include:
- City of Victoria Parkades
- Capilano University
- University of Victoria
- Uptown Shopping Centre
- Vancouver Island Health Authority
4 Types of Wayfinding Signs
There are 4 main types of wayfinding signs. They include:
- Identification – these tell people when they have arrived at a specific destination, e.g: “Accounting Department”
- Directional – directional signs help guide visitors to their desired destination
- Informational – informational signage helps to answer questions, e.g: “business hours”
- Regulatory – these signs are for rules and regulations, e.g: “no smoking”
Used together, each type of wayfinding sign can add to the positive user experience for your customers and visitors.
Interior Wayfinding Signs
Interior wayfinding signs are particularly useful in offices, larger buildings like malls and parking complexes, and more, and typically refer to signs for rooms, directories, stairwells, as well as hanging signs and large graphic wall signs to help people understand where they are and where they’re going.
Exterior Wayfinding Signs
Sturdy and attractive exterior wayfinding signs can be used on larger outdoor sites such as malls and schools to direct visitors and catch visitor’s eyes.
We can create a range of exterior wayfinding signage including pylon signs, directory signs, post signs, and more.
